INTRODUCTION

 

About your Personal Reading

 

   This reading was composed for you personally, Tom, and is based on your full name at birth, your date of birth, and the name you now use to introduce yourself.  Please check your birth data on the title page to make sure the names and date of birth used are correct.

   If you have two or more middle names or last names, you may find the names strung together.  This is necessary to make Transit and Essence cycles function correctly.  For example, the name John Patrick Henry Hancock would appear on the title page as John PatrickHenry Hancock.

 

   Tom, your Personal Numerology Reading describes all aspects of your chart as they are understood in numerology, accurately and in-depth.

   Each chapter starts with a short introduction telling you where this particular number is found and how it affects you.  This is followed by the number itself.  Often, you will find a double digit number followed by a single digit.

   The meaning of your number is then explained in easy to read language.  Tom, you don't need to know anything about numerology to be able to enjoy and benefit from this reading.

 

   I hope you will enjoy your reading.

 

LIFE PATH

 

   If ever there was a moment of total transformation, it was the moment of your birth. In that instant, you stepped through a door in time into a new reality -- the reality of human life. The most important number in your numerology chart is based on the date of your birth, the moment when the curtain goes up in your life.

   Even at that moment, you were a person with your own unique character, as unique as your DNA. Everything that is you existed in potential, much like a play that is about to begin. Your entire life exists as a potential that has been prepared for. Tom, you have ultimate freedom to do with your life as you like: To fulfill its potential completely, or to make some smaller version of yourself. It all depends upon your effort and commitment. You make the decisions to fulfill, to whatever extent, the potential life that exists within you. That is your choice. In this sense, the possible you is implicit during the moment of your birth.

   The Life Path number gives us a broad outline of the opportunities, challenges, and lessons we will encounter in this lifetime. Your Life path is the road you are traveling. It reveals the opportunities and challenges you will face in life. Your Life Path number is the single most important information available in your Personality Chart!

 

Your Life Path is 28/1

 

   Tom, you were born with extra-ordinary drive and determination. You are a born leader. You insist on your right to make up your own mind; you demand freedom of thought and action. You don't let anything or anyone stand in your way once you are committed to your goal.

 

   You assume the responsibility to be the protector and provider for those you love. You demand respect and attention and become irritated and even domineering when important things do not go your way.

   You need to feel in command of important undertakings, and resist supportive roles. You seek the forefront and the limelight.

   Tom, you are exceptionally creative and original and possess a touch of the unusual. Your approach to problems is unique and you have the courage to wander from the beaten path. You can be impatient with your shortcomings and those of others.

   You are very concerned with your status and foster the appearance of success and self-satisfaction. The need to appear well off propels you to strive for growth, success and the finer things of life.

   You should watch out for selfishness, conceit and the over-concern with appearance. You must guard against overzealous behavior, anger and aggressiveness. If these qualities are not brought under control you could become excessively domineering, vindictive and even violent. You perform best when you are left to your own devices. Ideally you should own your own business and be your own boss. Hold fast to your life's dream and work with the determination you possess to realize it. You can become overly stressed by your driven nature. Be careful about the food you eat and maintain an exercise program you enjoy. Competition sports are often a healthy outlet for a person with your drive, particularly sports involving running and swimming. Don't let pride and overconfidence be your masters. Remember, your talents and abilities are a gift from a higher source, which should promote gratitude and humility, rather than pride and conceit.

   More often than not a person with a 1 Life Path will achieve much in life as long as the drive, creativity, originality and pioneering spirit are fully employed!

 

   Tom, your 28 Life Path has all the qualities of the 1 and 10 Life Path, but with the added capability that you are more sensitive to the needs and feelings of others, and that you are uniquely capable of influencing people around you. You know how to motivate and direct them. Your sense of business also tends to be better developed than that of people with a 1 or a 10 Life Path.

 

BIRTHDAY

 

   The day you were born bears great significance in understanding who you are and where your talents lie.  The day of birth indicates some special talent you possess.  It is a gift to you that will help you along your Life's Path.  Your day of birth is one of your four core numbers -- the Life Path, Expression, and Heart‚s Desire being the other three.  It is the least significant of the four core numbers, but perhaps the most finite, in that it reveals a specific ability you possess in a marked degree.

 

Your Birthday is 3

 

   You have a highly-developed creative talent.  You are an artist at heart.  You could excel in writing, visual, or performing arts.  If you are not professionally involved in one of these areas, you should consider taking up art as a hobby.

   You are highly-imaginative, quick-witted, and possess the gift of gab.  You have great enthusiasm.  Others find you inspiring and charming.  You are a wonderful salesman.

   You are friendly and sociable, affectionate and loving.  You possess a good deal of charisma.  You can also be moody and subject to rapid ups and downs.

   Tom, you have a fine sense of harmony and art in everything that you do -- from your dress to the way you decorate your home.  You have a gift with plants and flower arranging.

   Be careful not to waste time and energy on trivial matters.  Keep your long-term priorities in perspective.

 

 

 

EXPRESSION

 

   Your Expression number reveals your physical and mental constitution, the orientation or goal of your life.  Some numerologists refer to this number as the Destiny, because it represents a lifelong target at which you are aiming.  You work at fulfilling this potential every day of your life.  Thus, the Expression number reveals your inner goal, the person you aim to be. 

   The Expression number reveals the talents, abilities, and shortcomings that were with you when you entered your human body.  Your name, and the numbers derived from it, reveals your development, as well as the talents and issues you will be working with during this life.

   For those for whom reincarnation is an accepted philosophy, the vibration of your full name can be seen as the totality of your personal evolution, the experiences, talents, and wisdom accumulated over many life times.  Every experience, no matter how great or small, along this evolutionary path has influenced your development, and brought you to your current state of being.

   The Expression is your being; the Life Path is the major lesson you are attempting to learn this time around.  Time allows the gradual emergence of your personality.  By reading the Expression number below, you will come to understand your basic nature and the abilities and issues inherent in your being.

 

Your Expression is 29/2

 

   Tom, yours is the most highly charged Expression number of all.  You are like a lightning rod, attracting powerful ideas, intuitions, and even psychic information like unpredictable bolts.

   You are a powerful presence without any awareness on your part of having personal power.  You are a channel for higher vibrations.  But in order to be emotionally and psychologically at peace, you must learn to control that flow of energy.  You possess a bridge between the unconscious and the conscious.  The trouble is that the unconscious is an infinite resource, while consciousness by definition is a limited arena.  The two are therefore at odds until they can learn to live in harmony with each other.  This is where control comes in.  Until you are able to control the flow of energy from this infinite source, you may feel like a victim of its whimsy, thrown about by emotional turmoil and nervous tensions.

   Tom, you have always sensed that you are different, but it was an indefinable feeling.  You are enormously sensitive and aware, especially as a child.  This made you vulnerable to all conflicts and painful situations.  For most of your upbringing, however, you did not realize that other people did not possess the same sensitivity, nor did they see the same things you were seeing.  This caused a great reservoir of emotion that was dammed up behind an inability to express your feelings, even to yourself.  For this reason, most 11 Expressions have a difficult childhood.  Your extreme sensitivity made you very shy as a child.  This usually manifests in adulthood as hesitation and acute vulnerability.  You are very careful about sharing your feelings with others and choosing your friends.

   You compensated for your sense of separation in childhood by creating an elaborate fantasy world.  You daydreamed more than other children.  You have a lively imagination and even in adulthood have a hard time separating reality from fantasy.

   Tom, your challenge is to bring forth your primitive, earthy strength.  You need to be grounded in order to deal with your lightning bolts.  The more you are able to call upon your inherent human strength, the greater your capacity to take advantage of your extremely sensitive awareness.  Once this is accomplished, your antagonist becomes your benefactor.

   You are highly emotional and dependent upon relationships.  Emotionally, you go up and down with the fortunes of your love life.

   You are idealistic, impractical, and at times disorderly.  You are often unrealistic in your expectations.

   Your reasons for doing things are usually born of a mixture of logic, emotion, and intuition, which can rarely be explained satisfactorily to your more rational associates.

   The 11 Expression is the number most dependent upon other core numbers in your chart for insight into your vocation.  The 11 charges every area it enters, but it needs a grounding vocation and discipline to be effective.

   A balanced 11 is one of the most unique and impressive of all people.  It is gifted with insight and illumination, which it can transmit to others.  This makes you a natural teacher in whatever area you enter.

 

HEART'S DESIRE

 

   Your Heart's Desire is the inner you.  It shows your underlying urge, your true motivation.  It reveals the general intention behind many of your actions.  Consequently, it dramatically influences the choices you make in life.  The Heart's desire is seen as part of the larger picture, called the core numbers, which includes the Life Path, Expression, Day you were born, and Personality.  But each points to a different aspect of you.

   The Expression number reveals your talents and abilities, and your general direction in life.  The Life Path is the central lesson you came into the world to learn.  The Day you were born is very closely connected to your Life Path.  It reveals specific talents you possess, which will be helpful to you in dealing with your Life Path.  The Personality reveals how people tend to see you.  It also demonstrates what characteristics you are projecting to the world.  The Heart's Desire demonstrates the identity of the soul that joined the earth -- you, the spiritual being.

 

Your Heart's Desire is 22/4

 

   Deep inside, you long to create something that will have a lasting impact on the world.  Whether it is a political movement, a business, or a philosophy, you have a strong inner drive to manifest something of major importance.

   Like the 11, yours is a Master Number, possessing all the intelligence, sensitivity, and electric creativity that such a power would suggest.  Tom, you have the inventiveness of the 11 and the down-to-earth practicality of the 4.  This combination can make you supremely capable of making your ambitions a reality.

   The demands of this Heart's Desire are as enormous as its potential.  What will be required from you to fulfill your noble ambitions is nothing less than a commitment of your entire being.

   The path you have chosen is not an easy one.  You need time to develop, and you are unlikely to begin to fulfill your ambitions until after you have reached a certain level of maturity.

   Whether you know it or not, you possess great power within your being.  You were born with this power in a latent state, but on some level you were aware of it.  Early in life, this power manifested itself as awkwardness and a discomfort inside of you.  Your self image has always been one of contradictory extremes: on one hand you sensed your uniqueness and potential; on the other you may have felt insecure and perhaps even inferior.

   This paradox has caused waves of self-doubt and lack of confidence.  But it also is a powerful generator of energy that, when combined with the higher characteristics of the 22, can become a dynamic and unrelenting force.  In order to channel such great power, you need a noble goal for which to aim.

   Tom, you will probably try your hand at several different kinds of work before you rise to the challenge of your true ambitions.

   You can be a great leader, inspiring and motivating with your vision and work ethic.  Your ideas are so creative and superior that they inspire enthusiasm and sometimes even devotion among your co-workers.

   You should be involved in large enterprises or governmental institutions.  You have the organizational diplomatic skills sufficient to keep difficult and delicate projects on track.

   Once you come into possession of your full power, there are many psychological and spiritual pitfalls to be faced.  You can become arrogant and superior.  You can become deluded into thinking that your judgment is beyond question, and that the advice and support of others is unnecessary.  You may seek to control all power in a given enterprise.  This dangerous and egocentric attitude is sometimes even extended to family members who you may seek to keep under your thumb.

   Tom, your challenge, once you have begun to use your true gifts, is to remain humble in the face of your significant accomplishments.

   You perform best when your domestic foundation is stable and supportive; it is very important to have a partner who shares your dreams and has high degree of strength and independence to keep up with your drive.

   Challenges somehow draw the best out of you.  Your human qualities -- creativity, humility, understanding, and compassion -- increase with the level of your performance.  Therefore, commitment to excellence is central to your success and inner development.

 

PERSONALITY

 

   Your Personality number is derived from the consonants of your full name at birth.  Your Personality is like a narrow entrance hall to the great room that is your true nature.  It is those aspects that you feel comfortable sharing with people at the outset of a relationship.  With time and trust, you invite others into the deeper aspects of your nature; you reveal more of who you really are, in effect, your Heart's Desire, Expression, and so on.

   Your Personality number often serves as a censoring device, both in terms of what you send out, as well as what you allow to approach.  It discriminates in the kinds of people and information you let enter your heart and mind.  For this reason, your Personality is usually much more narrow and protective in its definition than the real you.  It can screen out some of what you do not want to deal with -- people or situations -- but it also welcomes those things that immediately relate to your inner nature.

   Your Personality number also indicates how others perceive you.  No one can be objective about himself or herself.  Even our closest friends and relatives have trouble describing how they see us.

 

Your Personality is 16/7

 

   Tom, you seem mysterious and different.  People see you as serious and studious.  You are highly independent and self- sufficient.  Your exceptional intelligence and wisdom are quickly noticed, people respect you.  You are not one to attract people on the basis of your warmth or compassion -- though you may be loaded with both -- but because of your obvious insight into life's mysteries.

   You are hard to get to know.  You are often withdrawn.  It is common for people to see your focus turn inside of yourself in the middle of a conversation.

   You have the makings of an intellectual and an aristocrat but you have to guard against arrogance and an attitude of, "I've got it all figured out".

   There have been periods in your life when you had little concern for your clothing or fashion, while at other times you are very aware of your clothing and use it to make a specific impression.

   You appear dignified no matter how you dress., but a well groomed seven with a touch of dash definitely has an advantage.  Your confidence increases when you know you are well dressed.

   Tom, you are recognized as spiritual and religious, with your very own ideas regarding the purpose of life and the Creator.

   You are an inspired speaker, but only when discussing subjects that really interest you.  Otherwise, you are not one for chatter.

   Your love of knowledge and wisdom shows.

 

MATURITY

 

   Your Maturity number indicates an underlying wish or desire that gradually surfaces around age thirty to thirty-five.  This underlying goal begins to emerge as you gain a better understanding of yourself.  With self-knowledge comes a greater awareness of who you are, what your true goals in life are, and what direction you want to set for your life.  This, in a nutshell, is the gift of maturity: You no longer waste time and energy on things that are not within your own special identity.

   No matter what your age is at present, your life is being channeled in a specific direction, toward a very specific goal.  That goal can be seen as a reward or the fulfillment of a promise that is implicit in your current efforts, often without your knowing it consciously.  While the characteristics of this number are usually visible during childhood, we tend to lose sight of these aspects until later in life.  But our lives are always being affected by this influence, nonetheless.

   Your Maturity number begins to have a more profound impact on your life after the age of 35.  The influence of the number increases steadily as you grow older.

 

Your Maturity is 3

 

   As you mature, Tom, you will find yourself becoming increasingly extroverted and optimistic about your future.  Your self-expression and creativity improve markedly.  You may become inspired to take up some type of artistic endeavor, such as writing, acting, or music, if you are not already involved in one of these areas.

   Your ability to communicate will substantially improve.  You are naturally more fluent and may find yourself dressing with a certain flair.  Be careful not to fall victim to superficial appearances, or chasing after glamour and extravagance.

   With a 3 Maturity Number you can look forward to a pleasant and social latter part of life.  Your attitude will be increasingly positive and your popularity will rise.

   If you already have several 3s in your chart, especially in your core numbers, you may have a tendency to scatter your energies and take your responsibilities less seriously.  If you have few 3s, or are missing 3s entirely, you will experience a great relief from the tension and seriousness of life.  You will be more relaxed and capable of enjoying life.

   The 3 Maturity Number is a blessing in the latter part of life.  It promises enjoyment, close friendships, and much happiness.

 

KARMIC LESSONS

 

   Numerology is based on the understanding that we enter life with certain strengths and weaknesses.  Karmic lessons are areas that we are currently weak in and must be faced and worked on in this life.  There can be more than one Karmic Lesson.  These are indicated by the absence of certain numbers in your name.

   The letters and numbers of your name point to talents and abilities that you possess.  These characteristics can be compared to a workshop in which certain tools are available to you.  Missing numbers, those that are not represented in the letters in your name, imply tools that are unavailable, and must be learned and mastered during this lifetime.

   You may well recognize your Karmic Lessons as weaknesses you have learned to overcome in the course of your life, however, the challenges implied in your Karmic Lessons will continue to come up occasionally for the rest of your life.

 

(There are no Karmic Lessons hidden in your name.)

 

HIDDEN PASSION

 

   Your Hidden Passion reveals one or more special strengths and talents that you rely upon and are available to you.  The Hidden Passion represents your specific field of expertise, or a concentrated talent. 

   Metaphorically, this talent can be seen as having a power all its own to shape your life.  Its existence gives you a strong desire to develop and to express that particular ability.  Having the talent demands that you express it, that you experience this part of you, and that you live according to its nature.  In this way, the Hidden Passion shapes your personality, and guides your life.

 

Your Hidden Passion is 9

 

   Warm, generous and compassionate, you would do well and be quite happy in any undertaking that not only supplies you with a decent living but also is for the good of all.  Tom, you are artistic, the nine is responsible for many of our creative geniuses, however these talents are often suppressed, sometimes coming to the surface at middle or old age.  You have a strong desire for insight and universal knowledge.  You are emotional, your feelings are not always sensible and they too are often suppressed.  You can get caught up in dreams and ideals without being practical but with enough fire and enthusiasm to attract support.  Your oratorical abilities save many a situation.  You are driven to do your own thing and are quite independent.

 

BALANCE

 

   People experience different internal responses to life's challenges.  Some withdraw from difficult situations to think them through; others withdraw from their emotions, to try and keep themselves from feeling anything.  Some explode with emotions, but allow the explosion to pass quickly.  Others linger with their feelings, holding on to them well past the time they should have let them go.

   Very often, these are conditioned or emotional responses that emerge without thought or analysis.  Maturity and self-development help us to learn new and more effective methods of handling our world and the problems we confront.  Your Balance number provides you with the guidance on how best to deal with difficult or threatening situations.

 

Your Balance is 9

 

   You will find your solutions by empathizing with the concerns of others Tom.  You have a gift for understanding a wide variety of people and seeing the broader picture.  But too often you retreat to aloofness, a kind of Ivory Tower, in which you regard yourself as an aristocrat, above the masses.  Tom, you will find your solutions by coming down to the practical reality where people live.  It is in giving that you will receive.

 

TRANSITS

 

   The Transits are the individual letters of your name that combine to form the Essence, which is the number that reveals a great deal about your year ahead.  Your name can be seen as a piece of music that vibrates in time.  Each note, or letter, has a specific duration and influence over the course of your life.  Tom, your life, therefore, can be seen as a musical score, with the individual letters making specific contributions at given points, just as notes in a musical piece are played at specific points to give a piece of music its rhythm, character, and nuance.

   The Transits appear as part of your Progressive Chart and will tell you much about specific influences taking place in your life during given years.

 

THE PHYSICAL TRANSIT

 

Your Physical Transit for age 43 is S

   Tom, your feelings run deep and your awareness is higher than usual.  It is a period of rebirth and awakening, especially of hidden aspects of your personality.  Freedom in a very real and lasting sense can be your reward.  You will experience sudden changes in all aspects of your life, accompanied with spiritual and mystical revelations.  Your dreams may be rather intense and should be looked into for messages and understanding of your unconsciousness.  There will be confrontations with strong-willed people to test the strength of your convictions.  This is an exciting time full of surprises and extraordinary events.

 

Your Physical Transit for age 44 is T

   This is a time of strain and high-strung emotions.  Tom, you are willing to sacrifice and carry your burdens heroically, but you will have to guard against self-pity.  You will benefit from solitude and meditation.  You are looking for new activities and are eager to learn.  You have a strong desire for knowledge.  This is a good and rewarding time for business and new partnerships but you have to guard your territory against those seeking to interfere in your work.  There will be opportunities to travel and see the world.

 

Your Physical Transit for age 45 is T

(The Physical Transit for age 45 is the same as that for age 44, as described above.)

 

THE MENTAL TRANSIT

 

Your Mental Transit for age 43 is U

   This is an intuitive and sensitive time in which you may find yourself unwilling to put out much effort.  Tom, you lack motivation and initiative.  A lot of old and long forgotten emotional issues may surface.  People you have not heard from in a long time will call upon you.  Relatives and family may require effort and attention.  You have much creativity and enhanced self-expression.  Use it and promote yourself.

   This Transit offers an opportunity for great achievements in the arts, especially in writing, acting and music.

 

Your Mental Transit for age 44 is U

(The Mental Transit for age 44 is the same as that for age 43, as described above.)

 

Your Mental Transit for age 45 is I

   This is a very emotional time with many ups and down's.  Tom, you are high-strung and vulnerable to stress.  You are somewhat accident prone.  You need to develop calmness, centeredness, and an acceptance of life.  You must control your moods and not slip into feelings of self-pity and insecurity.  At the same time you are very competitive and have the opportunity to achieve success and financial reward.

 

THE SPIRITUAL TRANSIT

 

Your Spiritual Transit for age 43 is E

   Tom, you will feel inspired and helpful.  There can be change in career, travel, and possibly another residence.  You are attracted to new and adventurous experiences, including love affairs.  There can also be marriage.  Although this is a good letter for finances there may be a lack of focus and a more frivolous attitude, which will adversely affect your chances of real material progress.  You feel attracted to new religions and philosophical ideas.

 

Your Spiritual Transit for age 44 is E

(The Spritual Transit for age 44 is the same as that for age 43, as described above.)

 

Your Spiritual Transit for age 45 is R

   Tom, you have much understanding and insight during this time.  It is a time in which you have to deal with money, power, and authority.  You have an opportunity to elevate your financial status and personal growth.  This is a time in which you will meet the best and the worst.  You have to exercise caution in everything you do and every decision you make.  Be aware of your surroundings.

 

ESSENCE

 

   The Essence Number and the Personal Year Number are the two essential indicators of the forces that will influence your life during the course of any year.  While the Personal Year runs from January to January, the Essence is most strongly felt from birthday to birthday.  For example, if your essence number is 8 for the year 1988, you would begin to feel the influence of that 8 most powerfully after your 1988 birthday.  The influence would begin to wane during 1989 and would finally end at your birthday of 1989.

   The Essence number indicates the lessons you will be dealing with during that year.  It says a great deal about how you will perceive your environment.  It also gives clear advice on how you can be most successful during the year, that is, which types of behavior will be supported by your milieu, and which ones will be less effective.

 

Your Essence at the age of 43 is 9

   This is a period during which your ideals will be tested and forged anew.  Tom, you will be broadened in ways that you would never have dreamed possible.  You will likely experience a dramatic psychological and spiritual expansion.  Old relationships that no longer have a place in your life will be let go of.  Even old habits or characteristics that you believed were fundamental to your identity seem to evaporate.

   There is a need to forgive those in your past and let them get on with their lives, as you must with yours.  Hanging on to negative attachments, either out of anger or a sense that justice has not yet been done, will bring you much misery and, if the courts are involved, protracted lawsuits.

   You now have the ability to reach out to the masses.  This is a time requiring much self-sacrifice and service to others.  You are deeply affected by the pain and sufferings of others, and will feel a need to change your milieu or society for the better.

   Those in the arts, especially actors, writers, and other performers, will see an enhancement of their talents and the opening of many new opportunities for advancement.

   Tom, your focus is outward in a big way.  Teach, perform, and advance society in your own way.  Dedicate yourself to a higher cause.  These are the areas that will meet with much success.

   Conversely, selfishness, negativity, and pettiness will blow up in your face.  The time demands a broad view of life.  You are now the visionary, who must see the greater trends in humanity.

   Out of this will come much compassion for all.  This is the lesson of the period: That as you work for the greater good of society, you will be personally rewarded, so much so that your cup will runneth over.

 

Your Essence at the age of 44 is 10/1

   Tom, you will now begin an entirely new phase of your life.  You are on the threshold of a new beginning.  Not only will fresh ideas come into your life, but you will accept and even embrace them.  It is a time of radical change, and in all likelihood you are ready for it.  Now is the time to advance the new, and let go of the old.  All inefficient methods will have to be eliminated from your life.  In the same way, you must let go of relationships that no longer serve your future.  Discard habits and liabilities that you have been holding on to.  A new identity is emerging, one that is efficient, innovative, highly creative, and courageous.

   Your leadership qualities will rush to the surface.  Your environment will demand that you stand up to challenges, and face difficulties head on.  You can no longer hide from the truths of your life.  The facts are now blatantly clear.  Tom, you must make a stand.  Change is a given.  But you possess the power to make those changes.  All you need is the will and the energy to enact your plan.

   This is a period of struggle and great reward.  You have the chance to achieve independence.  But it will not be handed to you.  You must wrest from old habits and inertia of the past.

   As with all beginnings, this one will be marked by false starts and blind alleys.  You will be forced to start again and again.  You are like a baby learning to walk.  There will be falls.  You will have to persevere.  This is a period in which your willpower will be tested.  Tom, you are, in fact, forging your own determination.  You must not give up.  But the rewards are great.  The general influences are raising you to new heights of independence, courage, and self-esteem.  At the conclusion of this 1 Essence, your self- knowledge and self-respect will be greatly increased, as will your capacity to stand on your own two feet.

 

Your Essence at the age of 45 is 20/2

   Tom, you must learn to cooperate with others in order to accomplish some greater good.  This is not a time to lead, but to follow.  You must be content to draw your guidance from the environment and those in positions of greater power.  You must maintain your own center, but avoid arrogance, rigidity, and stubbornness.  The more you insist on your own priorities, the more resistance will you meet.

   This is a period of partnerships.  Your success depends on your ability to work with others.

   Tom, you will be extremely sensitive and intuitive.  Your powers of understanding will be at an all-time high.  These abilities will give you the insight you need to perceive subtle changes in people and situations.  You will therefore be better able to adapt to changing circumstances.

   Your intuition makes it possible to accomplish great tasks, even though you may not be in a leadership role.  The reason: you instinctively know how to react to change, and to gently advise people to go in the right directions.

   Tom, your role as an advisor or confidant is the key to your success during this period.  You are learning the lesson of interdependence.  You will also come to know how valuable you can be in a more passive role.  It is a period to serve, to be the helper, the assistant.  Your ability and willingness to work with others will be tested and rewarded.

   It is essential that you listen.  Be shrewd in your evaluations of others and of situations, but do not enforce your judgments directly on people.

   Your sensitivity will make it necessary for you to seek out harmonious and peaceful environments.  Be careful of the health of your nervous system.  You can become anxious more easily during this period.  Therefore, seek out people you trust; share your deeper feelings; allow yourself to be supported by friends and loved ones.  Keep your spirits high and avoid depression.

   Music plays an important role during this period.  Any musical talent you possess will be enhanced.  You even possess a certain physical grace that can emerge in dancing, athletics, or simply walking down the street.

   In your passive, centered way, you will be charismatic and attractive to others.  People will sense your fine intuition and sensitivity and seek you out for private talks.  Be loyal to friends and partners.

   Remain strong inwardly and flexible without.  In this way you will avoid the obvious difficulties and remain on your path to success.

   This is a period of accomplishment through gentle persuasion.

 

PERSONAL YEARS

 

    Your Personal Year number is a strong indication of the trends and circumstances you will experience during the year ahead.  Your Personal Year cycles are based on the Universal Year cycles and therefore run concurrent with the calendar year.  Transit and Essence cycles are based on the letters of your name and run from birth date to birth date.    

    There are nine personal year numbers, which makes up a complete Epicycle.  Each Epicycle reveals the progression or evolution of a specific part of your growth.  Tom, your progress along this Epicycle can be seen very logically, from the infancy or beginning of a growth period in your life, to the conclusion or culmination of that process.  The 1 personal year indicates your first steps in a new direction.  The years that follow indicate your progress along this path, concluding with your 9 Personal Year, which completes the cycle.  Below is a description of your current Personal Year.  It indicates where you are on the 9 year Epicycle.

    The Personal Years form the building steps that mark your progress through life.

 

Your Personal Year for 2005 is 8

 

   After last year's constant involvement with yourself and very possible occasional doubts about the state of your business or career you will find this year to be a relief, Tom.  Things finally work out.  Long postponed checks and promotions come through.  You see the light at the end of your financial tunnel and an inner strength and confidence is breaking through.  This is your year of harvest and, depending on the effort you put out in the past seven years, your reward will be equally large.  There is a beauty in these cycles we can recognize and understand and in doing so we find ourselves "in the flow" and there is no more need to try and struggle upstream.  So this year you will have an opportunity to involve yourself fully in work and material growth and bring home the rewards, at the same time a certain detachment is also necessary, for you and for the experience you have because it is not the reward that brings you happiness but your experience of life, which is why before the rewarding eight year you have had such opportunity for growth during the soul-searching of a seven year.  Give in to your ambitions, you will find yourself more clear and focused and able to pursue and reach your goals.  Tom, your power is visible and strong, mental creativity is high, vision and intuition will guide you, and at the same time you are more efficient and focused.  There can be loss, serious loss, bankruptcy and failure, because always the rewards are directly proportionate to your effort and motivation, however you know the effort you put out and you know your motivations, so there must be no room for fear and doubt, only for success and winning and this year will undoubtedly turn out to be a very satisfying year.

 

Your Personal Year for 2006 is 9

 

   This is your year to finish up all unfinished business, Tom, to clean house and make room for new things.  On a material level this is a good time to get rid of unnecessary weight, to give away or sell what you do not need anymore and to pay off old debts.  On a spiritual level you will experience a different mode altogether.  Your attention should turn to others and their needs, find ways to be of help and give time and energy to worthwhile causes.  You must lighten your burden of questions and doubts and the best way to do so is by directing your attention to another direction, away from yourself and you will find yourself becoming lighter and more in touch with your self.  This is a time of completion, problems can be solved and over with, strained relationships relax or disappear, the sources of stress in work or business can be better understood and dealt with.  Be social and communicative, enjoy music and other arts.  Tom, your creativity is higher than usual.  There can be some difficulties this year due to your desire to face obstacles and overcome them, decisions have to be taken and courage and strength may be severely tested several times, this is not going to be an easy year all the time but you will feel relieved and on the brink of a positive breakthrough by the end of this year.  This is the end of a nine year epicycle and will you will feel many times the excitement of a new and promising era when optimism is your friend but you will also experience the fear of letting go, however the more you let go the more room there is to be filled during the next epicycle.

 

PERSONAL MONTHS

 

Your Personal Month for August 2005 is 7

 

   Tom, August is a 7 Personal Month in an 8 Personal Year.  The emphasis changes from outgoing to inward seeking.  You are more serious now and self-reflective.  You question the wisdom of some of your decisions and choices made during the past ten to twelve months.  You keep to yourself, and are generally less social.

   You are engrossed in your work and feel a need to do a better job.  Your desire for perfectionism is strongly enhanced, which results in self-criticism and impatience with others.  At the root of this change in attitude is a spiritual need for clarity and understanding.  You want more security, both internally, as well as in your more worldly roles.  Tom, you would do well spending some time alone for contemplation and meditation.  In this respect, August stands out during this otherwise "material" year.

   Family and friends take a backseat during this period.  There are strong feelings connected to your relationships with your loved ones, but these are experienced and expressed more subtly.

 

   Romance becomes more serious.  You share mental, spiritual, and emotional experiences on the deepest level.  There is no room for superficial exchanges.  Your relationship with the person you are attracted to intensifies and becomes stronger as a result.

 

Your Personal Month for September 2005 is 8

 

   Tom, September is an 8 Personal Month in an 8 Personal Year for you.  This is a month with great potential for your career and finances, especially to increase your finances for the long-term.

 

   It is a time to be aggressive and outspoken.  Your authority is needed and you will have to apply yourself one hundred percent.  However, there is another side to this month.  You may feel that you have reached the pinnacle of your career, or that work and other areas of your life have become dull and monotonous.  You may feel you need a break.

   You are approaching a time of deep inner change.  Several times during your life you have reached a point at which you need to break out of a cocoon.  All evolution is gradual, but periodically interrupted by sudden bursts of growth, or change.

   Tom, you are at a stage in your life when you feel ready for such a change.  However, you are not clear about the true nature of this change and, while you may feel inspired to force some practical changes now, you should approach this with care.  Avoid impulsive decisions as well as any contractual arrangement that would tie you down for a long time.

   You need to rely on your own strength and feel confident that you have a certain amount of control over your own future.  You should relax and let things develop at their own pace.

   Social events are highly favorable and there will be ample opportunity for that.

 

Your Personal Month for October 2005 is 9

 

   Tom, October is a 9 Personal Month in an 8 Personal Year.  It marks the beginning of the end of a certain era in your life.

   Now you begin to let go of certain expectations you have long held.  There is a feeling of emptiness and of "what now?" The time has not yet come to respond to these feelings in a practical way.  Now is the time to begin to become comfortable with the need to change.  The changes contemplated involve both personal and professional life.

   For these reasons, October could become an emotional time.  Some melodrama and role playing is actually a subconscious way for you to test the people around you, and the depth of their commitment.  You are also testing your own position towards people, career, environment, spiritual beliefs, and other aspects of your life.  You have, even if you are not aware of it, already begun the process of selecting what you want to remain in your life and what you want to discard.

   This process, which continues through different stages over the next 2 years, is natural and nothing to be afraid of.  You are entering a period of reawakening.  This means a letting go of some of the comfort and security that surrounded and protected you for many years.

   Start giving some of your energy to a good cause that benefits others.  Ultimately, it will benefit you.  It takes the spotlight of your doubts and questions, and gives you strength and confidence.

   For October, practical matters can be handled with ease.  It is much better to pay off debts than to incur new ones.  Completion is favored over new starts.  It is a time to tie up loose ends, not so much to begin new projects.  It is a time to clean up and prepare for new things coming into your life.

 

   Tom, you are not in the right mood to pay much attention to romance or personal relationships of any kind, unless it's to test the strength of the relationship.

   You may be a little judgmental and self-righteous and will need to guard yourself against this sort of thing.

 

Your Personal Month for November 2005 is 1

 

   Tom, November is a 1 Personal Month in an 8 Personal Year.  It brings confidence, independence, and individuality.  Now, you are driven to take up new challenges, tackle new projects, and get a firm grip on your life.  You have energy to spare and you use this to inspire and motivate others.

   You feel that there is nothing you can't deal with.  You are ambitious and result-oriented.  You receive an opportunity that will have long-ranging effects on your life.  You are confident, but also a bit stubborn and hardheaded.  You are direct and not as sensitive to other people's feelings as usual.

   This is a good time for business and finances.  It is a time to be decisive and adventurous, not a time to be conservative.  Courage and originality are key ingredients needed to take full advantage of this cycle.  You are more stable and outgoing in your personal life, much to the delight of friends and relatives.

   You are also generous and inspiring, but not in the mood to deal with the petty stuff.  You are a little impatient.

   Romance may prove to be the most challenging aspect of this period.  The chances of meeting someone are good, but your approach may be too aggressive and lacking in sensitivity.

   If you are married, or otherwise committed, a small warning: not everyone is on the high curve of his/her cycle, so be patient.

 

Your Personal Month for December 2005 is 2

 

   Tom, December is a 2 Personal Month in an 8 Personal Year and shifts the focus to relationships and all affairs of the heart.

   Co-workers are demanding, not only in work-related matters, but also in personal areas.  You may catch some flack, or become involved in conflicts that don't appear to have anything to do with you.  All your tact and diplomacy are needed to maintain harmony in the work place.  However, you are better equipped to deal with sensitive affairs than usual and you manage to diffuse most of these potentially explosive affairs.

   Pretty much the same experiences await you regarding relationships with relatives and friends, but here too, you are able to keep the peace.

   Tom, your intuition and sensitivity are your strongest assets during this month.

   There is, however, also a need to stand up for yourself.  Someone is about to claim credit which rightly belongs to you.  Again, diplomacy and tact are required to solve this problem.

   This is also a good month for negotiation and financial affairs, particularly concerning loans and mortgages.

   Romance can be powerful, but may cause problems when money is involved.

 

Your Personal Month for January 2006 is 1

 

   Tom, January is a 1 Personal Month in a 9 Personal Year.  It brings progress as well as some turmoil.  Your career offers opportunities that should be taken advantage of, but you may also be wondering if you want to continue on the path you have chosen.  A change of course may be taking shape.  You may want to focus more on the ideas you had at the beginning of your professional life.  Even if you do not have a career, a return to the idealistic views you had at an earlier time cannot be avoided now.

   A similar desire for purity and idealism influences your relationships with friends and relatives.  You find yourself confronting some of the people close to you.  You may decide that some of your relationships are no longer desirable.

   You experience emotional ups and downs, caused by a need for confirmation of your love on one hand, and a tendency to be critical and judgmental on the other.  You are aggressive and emotional at times.  This combination may shake the foundations of many of your relationships.  Undoubtedly, some of these foundations may crack, but others will prove to be strong and remain undamaged.

   Financially, this is a time to be extremely careful.

 

Your Personal Month for February 2006 is 2

 

   Tom, February is a 2 Personal Month in a 9 Personal Year.  It awakens you to many of the underlying factors that influence your career and personal life.  You are highly intuitive; you experience strange and vivid dreams; and you gain insights that border on psychic premonitions.  At the same time, you continue to be vulnerable in the emotional area.  Any kind of criticism can devastate you.  You should avoid confrontations.  You are in a position where you can gain considerable understanding of the motivations and desires that influence you, as well as others.

   This is an important and valuable time, because you are learning much about the true nature of human beings, including yourself.  The challenge here is to see yourself and others in a spiritual light, with love and forgiveness.

   Some people who go through this particular cycle experience bitterness and anger.  For others, this cycle brings faith and gratitude.  For everyone, the impressions are lasting.

   Romance is powerful; you see and hear and feel more fully than usual, which brings an added intensity to the experience of love.

 

Your Personal Month for March 2006 is 3

 

   Tom, March is a 3 Personal Month in a 9 Personal Year.  It lightens things considerably.  You are not nearly as vulnerable as last month.  You are more playful.  You express yourself easily and you manage to inspire and motivate others.

   You receive some positive information about your career and your financial status.  Meanwhile, you are considering some big changes in these areas of your life.  You may want to keep your thoughts to yourself, or share them only with one or two of your most trusted confidants.  You are not ready to make decisions or take steps that are irreversible, but that time will come soon.

   This is an exciting time, when everything seems more intense, more alive.  You are more creative and communicative.

   Tom, you should take the time to enjoy yourself.  Go on a vacation.  Visit friends.  Be social.  Give yourself a break.

   Romance is favorable, but you have to guard against irresponsible and superficial behavior.

 

Your Personal Month for April 2006 is 4

 

   Tom, April is a 4 Personal Month in a 9 Personal Year.  It requires hard work, an eye for details, and dependability.  Your career is a top priority and requires much of your attention.  This is a difficult month with frustrations and a sense of urgency.  Perseverance is the key.

   There is another feeling that starts moving to the foreground.  You feel a little tired, ready to surrender.  Your energy level is lower than usual and this makes it harder to keep up with your duties and responsibilities.

   However, this is not a good time to slow down.  It is a time that can bring opportunity and an unexpected insight into a new direction in life.  You are at a point in your life when you feel that you have been stagnant.  Change is needed.

   This month will bring some practical insight and ideas as to how this change can be accomplished.  This is a good time for business ventures and investment.  It's also a good time to work on the house and garden.

   Romance is understated, but emotional stability is hard to maintain.  Don't make many any big changes or decisions in the emotional realm for now.

 

Your Personal Month for May 2006 is 5

 

   Tom, May is a 5 Personal Month in a 9 Personal Year and brings many changes and ideas that start you in a different direction.

   You are restless and impatient.  Your energy is scattered but you are ready to make a big step forward.  A move of residence or a travel will bring inspiration.

   You are at an important stage in your life where you feel a bit in limbo, but you also know that a change for the better is imminent.  You feel excited and confused at the same time.

   You do not really understand what is going on, and the motivations that have guided you for many years now seem outdated.  You question your underlying values and desires.  You feel a loss of direction.  Your best approach is to wait things out.  Do not start any new endeavors unless you are very sure you will follow through on them.

   Social events are highly favorable.  Tom, you need to be around people.  You need to be loose and enjoy yourself.  As I mentioned earlier, you are going through enormous changes this year and next year, and for that reason, interaction with others is therapeutic.  It helps you deal with the turbulence that takes place inside.

 

Your Personal Month for June 2006 is 6

 

   Tom, June is a 6 Personal Month in a 9 Personal Year and brings stability, strength, and understanding of yourself and the many roles you play in this life.  Some relationships may undergo a test this month.  This whole year is a time of letting go of certain people, behaviors, and roles that you have outgrown.  June is particularly important in sorting out your feelings for others.  Relatives and friends seek your company, but you may respond with aloofness and indifference.

   An important challenge this month is to be honest and open in your relationships.   You may tend to bottle-up your feelings.

   This is a good time for career and finances, even if you feel a lack of interest for these matters.  Romantic relationships are particularly fragile right now.  However, if your love-relationship survives this period, you know that it is based on true substance.  It will be stronger and lasting.

 

Your Personal Month for July 2006 is 7

 

   Tom, July is a 7 Personal Month in a 9 Personal Year.  It represents a time of insight and awareness.  You start to realize the magnitude of the deep inner changes that are taking place and this fills you with a combination of fear and excitement.  You know that the time has come to face up to important decisions that will affect your life, as well as the lives of those close to you for a long time to come.

   Your fear is based on your indecision and inability to know if what you want to do is right.  Your excitement comes from the knowledge that at least something is happening.  In this situation, the key is to choose what feels right.  Rely on your heart and your intuition, and have faith in yourself and your Creator.

   Tom, your career and finances are not priorities, except when they relate to plans you may have for the future.

   This is a time to prepare for the long-term, not to reach for immediate rewards.

 

Your Personal Month for August 2006 is 8

 

   Tom, August is an 8 Personal Month in a 9 Personal Year.  It brings financial matters to the foreground.  Take a close look at your financial situation and adjust your lifestyle accordingly.  Pay off debts.  Tie up loose ends.  Clean up this area of your life.

   Often, an 8 Personal Month, 9 Personal Year brings a stroke of luck; a payment from a forgotten source, or an inheritance.

   Use any extra income you might have to pay off your debts.

   You are facing a future that requires some risk taking, or investment.  Perhaps you have been thinking about a complete career change, or starting your own business.  Either way, you need to get a clean slate before the end of the year.

   You also receive recognition and compliments for effort put out in the past, which may result in a promotion.

   Romance is in better shape than the last two months.  If you are committed to someone and have experienced some troubles in the relationship, you will find stability and comfort this month.  If you are single, you may meet someone through work or business.

 

Your Personal Month for September 2006 is 9

 

   Tom, September is a 9 Personal Month in a 9 Personal Year.  Now your desire for change reaches a climax.  You are taking steps to implement changes you have been considering for some time.  Nothing is stable right now, but that should not worry you.

   You are making progress in hidden ways.  You feel insecure about the future but you rightly know that these changes have to be made.  There is a lot of adjusting that has to be done, not only for you, but also for the people close to you.

   More than at any other time this year, you let go of the old and prepare for the new.  This takes place in every area of your life; spiritual, emotional, and material.  However, this is not a month to make impulsive decisions and starting anything new should be postponed until very late this month or next month.

   A disappointment in romance is possible but will clear the air for future engagements.
